Nicely done! How did you get the base mounted to the wall like that? Definitely a labor of love.

Beautiful work. Are you used old mechanical movement or new? I want to make G&G clock too.

beautiful clock. Your G&G features are well done. I especially like top door and how the you’ve included the arcs into the door rails and styles and how they integrate with he cloud lifts at each corner.

This is an absolutely gorgeous clock. You’ve made a heirloom for sure. The craftsmanship is exceptional.

One small point I’ll bring up at the risk of seeming critical; I’d love to see more pics of this gem with some better camera focus. This is an exceptional piece that I think a lot of lumberjocks could learn from (especially me!). With Greene and Greene, the details make all the difference, and it’s tough to make out some of the finer details. Again, I say this not to be critical, but because you’ve built such an inspiring piece, and I for one want to see as much of it as possible!

Inspiring work. Thanks so much for sharing.

Wow—beautiful clock! I love G&G, and have never seen those features incorporated into a Grandfather clock. I’ll bet Charles would have loved it!

Hey Ken, you have created an absolutely beautiful family heirloom.

I am still a beginner, have learned much on this site and I am very appreciative (no spell checker here, not sure I spelled that right) to all that has helped.

I have noticed in the comments, “G & G, and Greene and Greene” could you explain what or who that represents?
Or maybe someone whom commented above could let me know what it means.

Greene and greene are two brothers (charles and henry) from southern california. home and furniture designers in the early 1900s. Google the gamble house the blacker house to see good examples of there work.

Thanks Bones, now I know what you guys are talking about. G & G are quite the designers. Very nice.
Thanks again.
